5-Star LB Malik Jefferson Takes In Baylor

Baylor had a big visitor on Sunday afternoon, as Mesquite Poteet standout, Malik Jefferson, paid a visit on his way back to Mesquite. Come inside BearsIllustrated for reaction to his visit.

Malik Jefferson is one of the most sought after defensive prospects in the country. The 5-star LB out of Mesquite (TX) Poteet HS has been around the country and proven his worth at several elite prospect camps. On Sunday, the #1 player in the State of Texas paid a visit to the Big 12 Champions, after a visit to Coach Charlie Strong and the Texas Longhorns.

BearsIllustrated was able to catch up with a source after the visit. The source told BearsIllustrated that the visit went very well and that the Bears still sit well the 5-star prospect. Jefferson visited Baylor with his family to let them get a feel of the campus and the coaching staff. Jefferson himself has been to the Baylor campus on more than a handful of occasions. With 3 official visits set to West Coast schools, Baylor and Texas seem to be fighting for a spot on Jefferson's official visit list. The Texas schools may not get an official visit though, as Jefferson has the ability to get down to these schools often. Still though, it has to be a great sign for Baylor that Jefferson continues to follow the defending champions.

BearsIllustrated has reached out to Malik for reaction, and will provide an update for our members as soon as we hear back.
